I'm in agreement with Ron and Al. I'll add the following:
* Avoid Windows 8. Get Windows 7 and keep it until 10 is out and running
for six months.
* Make sure your current devices support 64 bit and have appropriate
drivers. Some high ticket items like braille displays DO NOT. (I'm looking
at you, Alva)
* Really old apps (like from days of Win2K and older) are unlikely to run
even in compatibility mode. Have a plan to replace their functionality if
they're still important.
